My Dad knew Eve Ball and spent a lot of time on the Mescalero
there was a very old Man he knew on the Res.
Juan was the only name I knew him by .
He told a story about an old woman on the Res. who took him
to the Cavern in Dog Canyon and showed him the weapons
of the tribe .
before you enter Dog Canyon
second Rincon south of the mouth of Dog Canyon is another Cavern
low on the S.W. side is the entrance concealed mostly with stacked
stones that the adobe mixed with Antelope blood and caliche has
fallen off of .
At the end of the tunnel
there is a 100 foot in diameter pit
the floor of is 35 feet deep
across the pit can be seen the entrance to a tunnel that
goes further into the mountain .
